Frozen New Year

8 days & 7 nights

What about celebrating New Year’s Eve in beautiful Swedish Lapland, and in company of fluffy Icelandic horses?

For this once-in-a-lifetime New Year we offer you:

  • A comfortable accommodation every night
  • Various activities that will allow you to enjoy the snowy nature as well as your family/friends
  • A real Swedish New Year’s Eve: good food, happy company and fireworks

Day-by-day program

DAY 1

Arrival at Skellefteå Airport or Jörn Train Station.

We pick you up and drive you to your accommodation, in Svansele. During your stay you will sleep in the room by the “bagarstuga”, the village’s fire oven. Bathroom and kitchen are located in the next house, the old school.

You meet us around a nice dinner and we present you the next 7 days.

Night in Svansele.

DAY 2

After a nice breakfast in the old school, we will head up to the stables where we will prepare our horses for our morning ride. In the forest, around frozen lakes… our gentle horses will bring us to beautiful quiet places.

We come back to the farm for lunch.

In the afternoon, we prepare together one of our steady horses and harness him to a typical Swedish horse sled. We take a short ride around the village and enjoy the nice winter-decorated houses.

Dinner and night in Svansele.

DAY 3

 It’s New Year’s Eve!

After a nice breakfast in the guest house, we will drive to Flarken, where Fred will introduce you to his beloved sled dogs. He will make sure you are well equiped for the adventure, teach you how to drive your own sled and finally lead you for a beautiful ride in the snowy wilderness.  Be ready to feel all new sensations! After your first hours as a musher, back in Svansele, we hear about each other’s thoughts and share them with more new mushers by a nice warming lunch.

In the afternoon, everybody is free to prepare the New Year as they wish. Outside playing in the snow, inside playing board games or reading, there are many possibilities!

The evening (and the night!) is dedicated to celebration. Altogether, we will welcome the New Year around a festive dinner carefully prepared by our chef Micke.

DAY 4

 After a good breakfast, we head up to the farm to meet our 4-legged friends again. And this time, we ride for a whole day, in order to start the year in our favourite way.

We will take our lunch with us in our saddle bags and have a nice break in the forest in the middle of our ride.

Dinner and night in Svansele.

DAY 5

Breakfast at the old school.

We start this day of very nordic activities with ice fishing. We first take our snowshoes to reach the lake, where then each one of us dig a hole in the ice and settle for a calm and relaxing morning.

We gather around the fire for lunch. If our fishing was successful, we will prepare the fish we just caught and grill it to complete our meal.

Just after lunch, we take back our snowshoes for a nice hike into untouched snowy landscapes.

Dinner and night in Svansele.

DAY 6

Breakfast at the guest house.

This day is dedicated to the Sami culture. In a genuine reindeer farm, you will get to share a moment with a Sami family and will have the chance to learn more about and animals and their lifestyle.

Dinner and night in the old school.

DAY 7

Breakfast at the old school.

Day off! Many activities are possible to do so that you can enjoy your last outdoor day in Lapland : a last ride on horseback*, a walk in the forest, bread baking in the wood oven*, visit to the Wilderness Center*… you decide!

In the evening we will share a tasty traditionnal dinner altogether.
